Classification 5300.

5300-00 State government - Administrative field personnel
Applies to state employees whose duties may require them to travel to an alternative work location but their work assignment is administrative in nature. Travel is an expectation for these workers in order to perform their job duties which involves travel to meetings or appointments with clients, customers, or businesses. Travel to perform work at an alternate location may be required on a regular, sporadic or as needed basis. Typical work includes, but is not limited to, field auditor, collector, social worker, attorney, public relations or consulting staff with no hazardous exposures. Supervisors who occasionally travel to accompany field staff for purposes such as observation or information gathering, but who do not typically perform any work other than administrative, are also included in this classification. Employees in this classification may also have follow-up work that is completed in the office such as writing reports, correspondence, etc.
This classification excludes employees with duties outside of the office which are more than administrative in nature such as, but not limited to, engineers, inspectors, and biologists who may have some field exposure, and are to be reported in 5307. For purposes of this classification, field exposure is defined as any work period, other than the normal travel to or from a work environment, which involves "hands on" work.
This classification excludes: Employees whose duties include field or hazardous exposure, employees who provide interaction to direct, control or manage activities of inmates, residents, patients or potentially violent persons in state hospitals, schools, homes, detention or correctional facilities which may involve security, recreation, or staff whose duties include restraining individuals, who are to be reported separately in the appropriate classification (5307, 7103, 7201); clerical and administrative office personnel who are to be reported separately in classification 4902; law enforcement officers in any capacity who are to be reported separately in classification 7103; employees who provide patient or health care at state-operated mental health or acute care hospitals with a fully implemented safe patient handling program who are to be reported in classification 7200; employees who provide patient or health care at state-operated mental health or acute care hospitals that do not have a fully implemented safe patient handling program who are to be reported in classification 7400; and employees who provide care and treatment for patients or residents and work in state hospitals, homes, schools, detention or correctional facilities who are not otherwise classified who are to be reported separately in classification 7201. Volunteers are to be reported in classification 6901, and law enforcement volunteers in classification 6906.
This classification may be assigned to all departments, agencies, boards, commissions and committees of either the executive, legislative or judicial branches of state government.
Special notes: A division of hours is not permitted between classification 5300 and any other classification.
For purposes of this classification, the term "administrative field personnel" shall have the same meaning as "sales personnel" defined in the standard exception provision of the general reporting rule.
